South Sudan is facing the worst hunger crisis the world has seen since the Ethiopian famine of the 1980s, and more than one million Sudanese children are facing starvation. A staggering 90 percent of these children, already struggling to get enough nutrition, are infected with intestinal worms. These worms eat on average 20-40 percent of a child's daily nutritional intake, causing high rates of anemia, malnutrition and death.
The good news? Planting Peace can deworm a child for just ONE PENNY. So for every 10 dollars we raise, Planting peace can deworm 1,000 children! Join our deworming campaign today and help bring life-saving medication to one million children in South Sudan.
